Review: The Goblin King by Shona Husk
The Goblin King is a novel by Shona Husk and a Paranormal Romance from SourceBooks Casablanca.
Once Upon A Time...
A man was cursed to the Shadowlands, his heart replaced with a cold limp of gold. In legends, he became know as The Goblin King.
For a favored few he will grant a wish. Yet, desperately clinging to his waning human soul, his one own desire remains unfulfilled.
A Willing Queen.
But who would consent to move from the modern-day world into the realm of nightmares? No matter how intoxicating his touch, no matter how deep his valor, loving him is dangerous. And the one woman who might dare to try could also destroy forever his chance at a Happily Ever After.
Eliza Coulter heard the story of The Goblin King from her mother and she believed - so much so, that in a time of need, she called upon him for help. And help he did. But Eliza was just a child - and The Goblin King asked nothing in return for his help. But he gave a warning: do not call upon him again - because next time, he will exact payment.
Years have passed and once again Eliza finds herself in need of help and she calls out to The Goblin King once more. And once again, he answers. But Eliza is no longer a child - and she did not heed the warning.
Now, The Goblin King expects payment. He wants Eliza as his Queen.
The Goblin King is an enjoyable read in the damsel in distress/hero saves the day kinda way.
I give The Goblin King 3 out of 5 stars.
